all men in the world have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
since Adam and
Eve have sinned and been cast
into the world. They are naked and separated from God.
Adam and Eve sin, God
comes to them, but they run and hide themselves. It means they are
separated from God and naked. The naked human cannot minister to God.

we can get from the cross. Jesus has been stripped to give us His
process of receiving the white garment with many holes or the garment
of holiness and the anointing of Holy Spirit is as follows
Leviticus 21: 12,
'nor shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor
profane the sanctuary of his God; for the consecration of the
anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the LORD.

the anointing of Holy Spirit there.
do we have to dwell in the Holy Place? It
is not according to my will. My will is I only come here once a week,
but it is not according to the will of God. The minister who
ministers not according to the will of God is naked, even He is
disgraced and grieved.

High Priest or Great Shepherd, sitting at the right hand of God the
Father through the revelation of the Word
is important! If
there are open eyes, the servants of God or priests, including me,
will not see others or turn to the right or to the left as Moses
does. He kills after he sees that there is
none there. In such condition,
he does not minister to God, but kills or ministers with hatred. In
addition, the wife of Lot looks behind or sees the world. She becomes
useless pillar of salt. It means there is ministry but it is useless
and there is rottenness in life.
we must pray for the revelation of the Word of God. The more obvious
we have the revelation of the Word, the more obvious we see Jesus as
High Priest, Good Shepherd and Great Shepherd,
through the revelation of the Word of God. Moreover, we will not be
deceived by other people.
Iscariot seems to be the best disciple because the others run away
when they are at Gethsemane, but he kisses Jesus. If we do not have
the spiritual eyes, we will be deceived seeing such servant of God
who seems to be good and employed by Him. He seems to love God very
much, but actually he is a thief, liar, et cetera.
we have the holiness and anointing of Holy Spirit, we will only look
at God Himself, not any human, so we will never be deceived.

6: 25, 31 - 33,
"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you
will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will
put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
"Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or
‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
"For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your
heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and
all these things shall be added to you.
if we have the open spiritual eye, we will have activity to
seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness
We will not have anxiety that causes us to seek always the worldly
things until there is no time to serve to God.
first the kingdom of God and His righteousness means we have the true
consecration to minister to God in faithfulness, righteousness, and
a result, all things will be added to us. It means all our needs for
daily and future life will be added to us.
added means we have positive mark. It refers to the cross and means
we live by Jesus’
and we will
never experience deficiency but we always have surplus condition.
It is enough when we have true
consecration, service, and ministry. Let us focus on having the open
spiritual eye nowadays by prioritizing the true consecration or
seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness. On the contrary,
one with closed spiritual eye will see the worldly things. Let us now
be serious without nakedness but the white garment with many holes.
can get the garment of holiness or the anointing of Holy Spirit in
the sheepfold or Holy Place. We are sanctified to have the white
garment and anointed by Holy Spirit to have the many holes, so we
have the open spiritual eye to prioritize the true consecration or
the service and ministry to God more than anything in the world. As a
result, all things will be added to us. It means we live by Jesus’
cross without any deficiency.
our concern as the
servant of God is to wear the
white garment with many holes

have the right consecration.
the congregation understands the revelation of God’s Word,
the food, drink, clothes, and daily and future needs will become
God’s concern. He is the Good Shepherd and High Priest who will
give us all things through the cross.
Romans 8: 32,
He who did not spare His own Son, but
delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely
give us all things?
Him” means we are together with Jesus who is crucified. It is
similar to the verse in Matthew 6 -->
‘all these things shall be added to you.
He gives all things to us
together with Jesus who is crucified. As a result, all our needs will
be given to us as long as we have the white garment.
concern must be as follows
keep our white garment with many holes,
understand the revelation of the Word and obey it to sanctify us,
have the true consecration.
of those things are enough and all things will be added to us from
the cross together with the sacrifice of Christ.
He is able to give us all
things through the cross, even the thing we never think.
God never fools us, His
servants, as long as we have the white garment.
in nakedness while we are ministering to God means we fool Him.
Therefore, we must wear the
white garment and God will never fool us.
the contrary, as it is written in Matthew
we must be careful because if
we do not have the white garment with many holes, we will be blind.
Be careful because there are many servants of God who are blind
because of these things.
having the white garment with many holes or holiness.
having the anointing of Holy Spirit.
the pastor is blind, the servants of God and the congregation
will be too. Consequently, they enter a deep pit.
is the practice of the blind servant of God who has no white garment
in anxiety as
one only seeks for and
prioritizes the physical things, so he cannot minister to God,
prioritize the service and ministry, be faithful, or have the true
life in anxiety is as the woman who is bent over for eighteen years
or stamped with 6.6.6. One
may minister to God, but not seriously as the woman who is in the
synagogue. She is bent over and worried. She keeps on looking down
about what to eat, drink, and wear or daily needs,
about the future life, so one cannot minister to God or prioritize
the service and ministry,
having the true consecration.
6: 26, Look
at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather
into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more
value than they?
sowing nor reaping but we are preserved by Father in heaven. It
means one is
only as bird
when he has been blessed by God but does neither build the body of
Christ actively nor sow nor reap. The bird does not sow or reap but
keeps on eating and being happy. It means Christian who has been
blessed by God, bur does not want to sow and reap or minister for
building the body of Christ. Consequently, his destiny is as the
bird or Satan that will perish forever in the hell fire.
we must be serious. Let
God check our garment now, whether we serve in nakedness and
blindness or with the garment with many holes or holiness and the
anointing of Holy Spirit. If we have the second condition, we will
only see Jesus, the High Priest, through the revelation of the Word.
We can clearly see Him to get the true consecration. All our needs
for our present and future life are the concerning of God. He will
add or send them through the cross together with the sacrifice of
Christ. God does not fool us.
we wear the white garment with many holes or have the opened eyes
only to see Jesus, the High priest, His eyes will always be on us
with His mercy.
such condition, Jesus the High Priest always cares and understands us
to struggle for us

eyes are always on us.
us check our white garment with many holes or our eyes.
Whom do we want to see? Let us live in holiness in the anointing of
Holy Spirit and have the opened eyes only to see Jesus. It is proven
by our priority to the revelation of the Word, the service and
ministry, and the true consecration. There is no anxiety anymore. It
is enough. God the Father does not spare His own Son but gives Him to
us. How can He not give all things together with Jesus who has died?
He will give us all things for sure. We do not need to look for them
but have the white garment. All other things are the concerning of
result is as follows
Chronicles 16: 9, For
the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to
show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.
In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall
must be serious in the true consecration, listening to the Word
until we can understand, and do our ministry to God.
Asa does foolishly. He always
won over strong enemies because of the help of God by leaning on
Him, but then he does not want to make war again. He joins to the
kings of Aram to get their power. God rebukes him.

He gives us extra power as follows.

servants of God who have stumbled or fallen. There is extra power to

others when we face a problem. In such condition, tear will be
always in our life. If the problem is solved, the tears are wiped
away and the joy happens. Thus, the time we start to be serious is
the time when our tears are wiped away. We must believe in it.
we faced many problems or tears and became weak and bored of
ministering to God. Let us now be serious to keep our white garment
with many holes or the opened eyes only to see the Lord, the
revelation of God’s Word to understand, and the true
If we are serious, God will start to wipe away
our tears. Our problems are solved one by one and we feel the joy as
a swallow of sweet wine. Maybe your life is as drinking a bottle of
bitter drug, but now we can taste the sweet life although only a
little. God continues to work and we must believe that He never
fools us or makes us sorrowful if we minister to Him. He will make
our life beautiful and sweet.
will also never let His servant stumble or fall because of sin. He
still wants to see him --> Luke
22: 60 – 62,
But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what you are saying!"
Immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed.
And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the
word of the Lord, how He had said to him, "Before the rooster
crows, you will deny Me three times."
So Peter went out and wept bitterly.

a great servant of God, can walk on water, but he can stumble or
fall because of the sin of denial to Jesus.
eyes of the Lord pay attention or look at the servant of God who has
now you leave your ministry, sin in deeds and saying, and deny the
Lord. There is still an opportunity as long as the rooster crows or
the shepherding Word is still preached because the merciful sight of
God pays attention to His servant who has fallen in sin, even in the
peak and unfaithfulness, as well as leaved the ministry and gotten
failure and destruction. Thus, it is very important for us to be
have explained about ‘turning’.
Actually, one who denies Jesus
is not seen by Him. Thus, the term “the Lord turned’ means that
He does not look at Peter anymore. Peter has been behind Him or He
does not heed him anymore.
one who has denied Jesus or the servant of God who has fallen in sin
and leaved the ministry or become unfaithful is far away from the
sight of Jesus. The Shepherding Word God
trusted to a pastor is useful although it is simple as the crowing of
a pastor does not want to preach the Shepherding Word, the
congregation will be in disaster. Moreover, there will be everlasting
perdition to the people who have fallen because there is no merciful
sight of the High Priest
I say that I am not great. I come from Malang to Surabaya
by passing through long distance journey although only there are some
people here, maybe eight or ten. It does not matter because I believe
that there is God’s presence where there is the crowing of the
rooster or Shepherding Word. Although it is simple, but there is the
sight of High Priest in it. Therefore, please pray for us, the
pastors, to be responsible for the people who have fallen. There is
attention of God as long as there is Shepherding Word.
proof of having the sight of the High Priest is as

So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon,
son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him,
"Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him,
"Feed My lambs."
He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do
you love Me?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I
love You." He said to him, "Tend My sheep."
He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you
love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third
time, "Do you love Me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, You
know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him,
"Feed My sheep..

three times "Simon, son of Jonah,

Peter lifts up his hands, so his
hands meet Jesus’
21: 18, 19,
"Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded
yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will
stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where
you do not wish."
This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And
when He had spoken this, He said to him, "Follow Me."

hands meet Jesus’ means Jesus’ hands are stretched to exalt him
from failures, so his life becomes beautiful and successful. In the
beginning, he has denied Jesus and gotten total failure, but finally
the hands of God’s grace are able to exalt him and give him
beautiful successful life before Him.
God is able to exalt us
from our failures, heal, and use us again to minister to Him. He is
able to exalt us on glorious clouds. He perfects us and we meet him
